Impotence - Caused by Marijuana
The Herballove team knows its plants. We know their usages, and we understand their sublet differences. So when a boy takes a picture of himself with a Cleome plant and photoshops in the words “smoke weed every day,” we cannot help but laugh. While Cleome may sort of resemble a marijuana leaf, anyone who has at seen a rap video, watched a movie about marijuana or even attended a college party knows what weed looks, smells and maybe even tastes like.
Marijuana is no longer used by the counter culture. It's used by mainstream, everyday Americans. It's responsible for spawning an entire industry that sells everything from bongs and vaporizers to heat lamps and incubation boxes. It's even been the focus of digital publications; universities that teach students how to grow, sell and profit from marijuana legally; and non-profit organizations whose sole goal is to legalize marijuana. Marijuana has gone from a counter culture gateway drug to a mainstream hallucinogen.
Cannabis Abuse100 million Americans have admitted to trying the drug at least once. And while cannabis may not kill you (according to statistics, it would take one person 800 joints to die from carbon monoxide poisoning), the gateway drug does cause a debilitating, exasperating side effect: impotence.
Each time you puff up, your body raises its level of inflammatory hormones, i.e., prostaglandin E-2. Now, prostaglandin serves a vital purpose: relaxing the muscles. But it too inflames the body when too much of it is produced. Think of Prostaglandin as cough syrup. When taken in the right dosages, it serves its proper purpose, but when too much is ingested, it can be hazardous to the body.
Years of abusive smoking can create high levels of prostaglandin E-2, which can cause arteries to become constricted. Your arteries are the lifeline of your erections. If constricted, arteries cannot pump enough blood to the areas that matter most: like your brain and your penis. When you experience lower blood flow, you start to notice, your toy solider not saluting as well as before.
Prostaglandin E-2 also causes another major side effect: minimizing the effectiveness of the brain-blood barrier. The brain-blood barrier acts as a strainer: It keeps nutrients in while keeping toxins out. While weed may help improve your mood or enhance your sex life, it too injects toxins into the body that penetrate the cerebrospinal fluid and elevate your risk of

Did You Know?Marijuana chemicals are poisonous to healthy cells. The delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol chemicals in weed inhibit acetylcholine function, which lowers heart rate and acts as an excitatory neurotransmitter. When depleted, acetylcholine can lead to impotence and premature ejaculation problems. Meanwhile, marijuana also stymies the production of nitric oxide, a signaling molecule used for stimulating the penis for an erection. When collated with low acetylcholine levels, nitric oxide cannot stimulate the penis for a healthy erection. 
Young adults who use Marijuana have a higher risk of developing symptoms of schizophrenia compared with adults who do not use the drug. Research has also shown that young adults are more likely to have reduced white matter density in the brain. 
Finding the Right DetoxMarijuana detoxification is a process. It takes a few weeks to see a reduction in prostaglandin E-2 and an improvement in acetylcholine and nitric oxide production. Men who suffer from weak, unsustainable erections or men who no longer witness a visit from the boner fairy, need to stop smoking weed. If you're addicted to the substance, seek medical help. If you quit cold turkey, do so. The goal is to stop as soon as possible to allow your body to heal itself. You too may want to take all-natural herbs found in Cannabis Detoxification. According to research, men who take all-natural detoxification herbs experienced a healthier, strong erection.

What to do
Brain Chemistry and MarijuanaPersistent marijuana use alters brain chemistry, damaging not only the brain, but also the organs. For people under the age of 21, the effects of marijuana are even greater. The reason? The brain is still developing... Read more
